MAGNET Exclusive: Juiceboxxx’s “Freaked Out American Loser (Dave Sardy Remix)”

Juiceboxxx is kinda like that cool jukebox in your favorite dive bar, the one that’s heavy on hip hop but also has a mixture of all of the other different kinds of music you love to listen to while drinking your face off. The 31-year-old Milwaukee-bred/Brooklyn-based rapper/singer has been somewhat of an underground sensation for the better part of half his life, but now with the recent release of the stellar Freaked Out American Loser (Dangerbird), it appears that Mr. Boxxx is ready for his closeup. “I conceptualized Freaked Out American Loser to be a true, raw punk/rap blast,” he says. “Something like Jesus Lizard meets Cypress Hill. Wu-Tang meets the Breeders. Public Enemy meets Boredoms. You get the picture.”

The latest single off the nine-track album is the closing title track, which shows off Juiceboxxx’s post-punk inclinations. “I wanted to write an anthem that all of us losers can believe in,” he says. “So it only made sense to get Dave Sardy to do a new mix and really blow it out into the fist-pump zone. We are all just trying to take it one day at a time and, hopefully, change our lives for the better. Every single day is a struggle, but I’m trying really hard to keep going. I think Sardy’s mix really takes this song to the place it was always supposed to go. I couldn’t be more psyched. We’re all losers.”

We losers are proud to premiere the “Freaked Out American Loser” remix by musician/producer extraordinaire Sardy (if his name isn’t on at least 20 records in your collection, you aren’t a fan of good music) today on magnetmagazine.com.
